We celebrated the longest day of 2012 at the phenomenal Bal Blanc hosted by ‘The Creators Project’ and ‘We Love Art’ who combined their forces to bring forth this awe-inspiring event for the clôture of this year’s Monumenta, which presented Daniel Buren’s work. By bringing together three electronic music gods – Caribou, Four Tet and our London homeboy Jamie XX – we were stunned by (Buren’s circular) rainbow-coloured energies that reigned over the ecstatic white-dressed crowd in the historic Grand Palais in the heart of Paris. Not only did the god-guys play back-to-back, but they performed an electrifying set of dynamic playfulness and blew us away until, only allowing us quick ciggy breaks, lounging on the welcomingly cooling stone stairs or to catch a from the terrace up above, where the select gathered in their elevated universe.
Where on Earth does one dance blissfully in (usually despised) white attire, beneath a sky of white raving stars, with beats and melodies that drown you in euphoria? It must be Eden.
